Saturday, January 30, 2016
7.30 PM

Peter Osborne is professor for modern European philosophy at Kingston University in London and works as an editor of_ Radical Philosophy_. His highly acclaimed book Anywhere or not at all: Philosophy of Contemporary Art (2013) diagnoses the concept of contemporaneity especially in connection to art as historic and establishes a philosophy of art re-framing the heterogeneity of and antinomies within contemporary artistic practices. For Osborne, the post-conceptual condition is a prerogative for contemporary art.
